Tasmanian Business Events Attraction Fund 

The Tasmanian Government and Business Events Tasmania are dedicated to supporting business events that will have long lasting benefits to the state. The Tasmanian Business Events Attraction Fund (BEAF) allows Business Events Tasmania to offer financial support at the critical bidding stage, to help secure strategic national and international conferences.

Through Tasmania’s Business Events Attraction Fund, we are offering both delegate boosting support and business event sponsorship. Based on the return on investment the event brings to Tasmania, delegate boosting support can equate to up to $150 per delegate.

Applications for funding are looked at on a case-by-case basis, and funding is provided based on the proposed economic return to Tasmania.

An event’s suitability for support will be assessed against a number of criteria including:

  • how it relates to a key Tasmanian trade or business sector;
  • its ability to drive visitation to the state;
  • the extent to which it supports regional yield and dispersal; and
  • its potential to leave a legacy in the state.

Contact us to find out your events suitability.
